The impulse to travel to the falls is the same, but the pursuitis only a little bit different.AdventureVictoria Falls is the biggest waterfall in the whole world, and itserves as a safari gateway for Southern Africa. The falls has become avery popular place for visitors to go white water rafting, riverboarding, and even bungee jumping.
